A fun project

Fun to try different plants. Our basil plant is especially bushy and proliferous. Not hard to get them growing, just takes time and some consistent sunlight. Excellent gift for the holidays

My mom LOVED it as a present!

I just gifted the basil herb jar to my mom for Christmas 2022 and she was incredibly happy. She can’t wait for spring to roll along.
